Base Oil Analysis

All raw materials used in a lubricant blending plant to manufacture finished lubricants need to be tested before they are used, as part of the processes of quality control and quality assurance.
CCIC Singapore offers a wide range of base oil & new lubricant oil measuring solutions to help you optimize your processes and meet finished product QC. Our personnel are both experienced and well-trained. You can be sure to have full control over your production processes, to have the right blend for your customers' applications, to meet the required specifications, and to manufacture on time. We do provide 24/7 sample collection island wide.
